TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?
In the video above, Dr. Phil reviews Justin’s reported “resume” with Danielle.
“We do know that he does choke you. We do know that he does call you names. We do know that he is willing to put you on the internet with sex tapes,” he says, adding that Justin also has a criminal history. “Who did you turn down?
